I was able to get a hold of an amazing guy named Chris Brisson. He is a 28-year old entrepreneur based in Del Rey Beach, Florida. He was able to share his ideas and experiences about how he made money through the internet without even expending a single drop of sweat doing actual work while he was busy with his leisurely travel.Chris said that everything started with a philosophy, a viewpoint concerning work wherein you actually live the life that you want doing things that you’ve always wanted. He explained that this philosophy made him decide to start a business through the internet which would allow him to travel and at the same time have access to his online business anywhere in the world. He says that what makes an internet based business more appealing to the kind of lifestyle that he chose is the mobility that it presents to him. He added that to manage an online business, one only has to have access to the internet through devices like a laptop, an iPhone or the iPad and you’re good to go.Chris shared with me that the secret to his success in his business venture is through the use of networking. Knowing the right individual or group of people with the same passion as you have will surely help in the long run. He spent a lot of his time attending seminars of some of the top online business gurus in the country such as Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Yanik Silver, Frank Kern, etc. In a couple of these seminars that he attended, he met people who are actually making money through the internet. Knowing them and learning from them has a lot to do with the success that his business is having now. It was a huge help for his venture the things that allowed him to focus his mindset to the philosophy he mentioned in the earlier part of our conversation.Nevertheless, Chris admitted that in some cases, traveling could pose a few little problems with regards to managing his business. Handling transactions on different time zones is one of the major obstacles that he has to face. According to him, he does his transactions through e-mails and teleconferences via Skype. He made use of the auto-responder feature of his email so that transactions can continue even when he’s away for a couple of days in places where there is no internet connection. He says that all that he has gone through was sort of an experiment for him with regards to his business and it actually paid off its dividends in the long run. His online business was virtually running on auto-pilot from then on!In view of the things that he did like attending seminars from top online entrepreneurs, making contacts with people who matter, gradually learning the tricks of the trade, looking for the right tools, experimentation and innovation regarding his business endeavor, it was absolutely an amazing time to be able to learn about this guy who made it. He is the one who set everything up on auto-pilot and now he only check his sales reports and see how many sales he got. His business is growing without him actually being there. Now this is what I call a fantastic lifestyle!
